Ship loaders are large machines used to load bulk solid materials such as coal, iron ore, bauxite, alumina, fertilisers, phosphates, and sulphur into ships. These ship loaders are mostly found in ports and jetties where bulk materials are exported from.

Apart from the 750 t crane itself, Concord Cranes’ successful involvement in this project was due to the expertise and experience of its operators, Richards Bay Branch Manager Bella Mollentze comments. “Our operators and support teams are the heart of our business. You need special people with passion who love what they do.”

Therefore to maintain its high standards of service delivery, Concord Cranes’ operators and support personnel are trained continually and are sufficiently skilled to operate its advanced equipment and technology.

“It is an essential that they are confident with the cranes’ functions and capabilities, especially when dealing with major lifts such as these at Richards Bay,” Mollentze concludes.
